Can anyone advise me as to the best time to add a tank cleaner with my baby barbs

At the moment I only have 4 fry probably because I didn't remove the parents quickly enough but they are now 2 weeks old and the tank is quite dirty with algae. 

I think this is due to the Liquifry I have been feeding them because it says on the packaging that it contains micro organisms in it and I think these have multiplied in the tank plus I read that the fry need a lot of light so the light is on nearly all day and most of the evening. 

I would like to put a loach or plec in the tank to clean in naturally but I am worried that they might eat the fry by accident.  I would say that they are about 3 mm in length.  They are still transparent but the black stripes are just starting to show.
